Good food- not fancy

It's not fancy, but it's comfortable and friendly. Fish fry on Friday are wonderful and fairly priced. Prime rib on the weekends is delicious. Service is always prompt and friendly.

I spend many Friday nights here enjoying their 'before 6' special fish fry. I prefer the beer-battered and it isn't a tiny piece, for sure. Their salads are fresh with many dressing options. One of their specialities is a shrimp cocktail to die for-----4 GIANT shrimp, fresh and clean and a delicious cocktail sauce. This alone is worth the drive!... More

Was told by a friend we have been missing out on a hidden gem. Friday night dinner at Cheap Charlies was all about the Prime Rib. Served as real Prime Rib should be served, WITH THE BONES IN. We were not disappointed ! ! Well worth the trip to Bloomfield for this "rare" treat.

The food was good, but average. The waitress seemed efficient but uninterested. When you walk in the restaurant everyone at the bar and tables cranes their neck to stare as if to say, "what are you doing here"? It is obviously for locals only. We felt out of place. I had the fish fry which was haddock of lesser quality.... More

Ended up being our go to place. We came down late on Thursday and had prime rib at 8pm. It was very good and huge portion. Went thru the weekend and had a couple bad experiences in Canandaigua. Our last dinner we went back here and didn't disapoint.

Friday nite fish fry is a busy time, waitstaff is very friendly and efficient. Food was good and portions were plentiful. Have visited several times over the years and it has remained consistent.

Cheap Charlies was an average place to eat. Food was good, portions were a good size but the service was rushed and if you didn't know the owners personally it was apparent that they saw you as an outsider. We were seated by the owner who threw two menus on a table and walked away. We were lead to assume... More
